Hello there! We are Laura and Randel Waters with Living Waters Pregnancy, Birth, and Wellness Support. Laura is a CAPPA certified Labor Doula and Childbirth Educator, and Randel is a doTERRA Wellness Advocate. The two branches of the business go hand in hand as many of Laura’s clients like to use essential oils during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. Randel and Laura also team teach essential oil classes.
Our journey began in about 2010 when I (Laura) first heard the word doula. When I looked it up I was amazed that there was actually a name for what I loved to do! I tell people that being a doula is what I never knew I always wanted to do. As long as I can remember, I have loved babies, birth, and families that included lots of both! My best friend when I was growing up was the oldest of eight. Every time her mom had a baby she would call my mom to go be with her. Every time I would beg her to let me go, and every time the answer was no. Now, I am the one who is called, and I get to go! Now, I love to support women because I love to see women and families become empowered by making informed choices about their births and wellness. I love the confidence they gain from researching their options, making informed choices, and seeing the fruit of those choices.
Several years later, I’ve earned both my Labor Doula and Childbirth Educator certifications. Education is what it’s all about. Teach the mamas evidence based information, let them choose what they want based on that information, and then support their choices. This is what makes birth beautiful and families strong!
Randel and I both teach essential oil classes. I specialize in classes about how oils can be used during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. We both teach about how oils can benefit the whole family. We love the difference that essential oils have made in our family’s lives, and we want to share those experiences with others! It is so empowering to know that we have a choice about our health and wellness and to make those choices ourselves!
At Living Waters Birth and Wellness, we strive to share the most up to date evidence-based information with our clients. If there is something we don’t know then we will always do our best to find the answer. Knowledge is power, and empowering families is our goal!
